The Sentai Filmworks released the anime on Blu-ray Disc on February 4. Also, it describes the anime as:
It is about a desolate world where the safest form of transporting cargo is by air pirates roaming in the sky, preying on aerial commerce and holding remote towns for ransom. The only defence against these airborne marauders, is to hire high-flying protection of your own. Now, this is where the mercenary pilots like the girls of the Kotobuki Squadron come in.
Behind their lightweight Nakajima Ki-43 Hayabusa fighters, these lady falcons play a deadly game of escort. Here, a single mistake can end up in a fiery crash or mid-air collision. But for birds of prey like Kylie, Chika, Reona, Kate, Emma, and Zara, the danger is worth it as they get the chance to spread their wings and soar into the heavens.
